Elizabeth Liang spent the better part of her youth adapting to the cultural differences that permeated her immediate world. Born in Guatemala as he mixed daughter of two culturally different families, Elizabeth spent her formative years at Balboa Elementary (now Balboa Academy) and Diablo Elementary in Panama. She attended middle school at Bedford Middle School in Connecticut as well as both Casablanca Branch School (now Casablanca American School) and Tirso de Molina in Morocco. She spent her high school years at Cairo American College in Egypt. Throughout all of these experiences, Liang became accustomed to adapting to another culture, and learned to take such a journey in stride as it became an integral part of her identity.
